Ok ladies, so Dh and I took our DD (2) to a new doctor today. She has a barking cough so I immediately assumed Croup? right? No, she has Bronchitis. Well the nurse came in and were asking health questions about her like the nurses always do and then she spouts off "Are there any guns in the home?" LIKE WTF??? what do guns have to do with my child being sick???

Is this the new thing doctors are doing now? I found it to be really odd! The conversation went from ear infections to if we own any guns!!! WTH

They've never asked us that, of course almost everyone here owns guns.

 Well same here, we live in a very hunt active part of arkansas, almost everyone owns guns. We however don't, But i do have a taser ;) I just don't understand why she would even ask that ya know? it has absolutely nothing to do with her being sick

I've heard of this before, but have never been asked.

Everyone is going to love the new laws I tell you. I wondered when this would start.

They ask me that at the hospital along with "is anyone hurting you". I guess it's standard.

I've heard some doctors ask that before. Mine never has.

Maybe they want to discuss gun safety if your answer was yes?

I have had that with every doctor I have seen since I became pregnant with my son.
